So, my (shared) server went down today, and my WordPress database seems to have gotten corrupted. Only reason I know is I’ve secretly got WP_DEBUG_LOG enabled at all times. Kept getting a “Please DISCARD the tablespace before IMPORT” while it was apparently trying to recreate a table that got orphaned.

I’ve been off Twitter for, like, nine or ten months. And, I really don’t like email “newsletters.” (RSS is wonderful, though, as is HTML—microformatted HTML.)

This. Webmention = an improved Pingback. Everything else requires microformats, third-party services, or a fair bit of attention to actually get right—which is probably okay.

These are all fantastic things that are built on top of Webmention but that I often feel are conflated with Webmention.
